Okay, so I'm officially going FRIENDS ONLY with this journal.  There are a few reasons for this, but most of them have to do with the very personal posts I've been making lately, and that's not going to change any time soon.

So, here is me:

I talk a lot about my dogs, my husband, and my grandfather -- who has been suffering from Fronto-Temporal Dementia, and has just entered Stage 4 (the final stage).  I love tea and I love to bake and also talk a great deal about both.  I gripe and bitch about the writing process, as I struggle through the first draft of my first novel, and -- in the same vein -- celebrate copiously when I finally muddle through difficult parts.  Politically, I'm a registered Independent with fairly conservative leanings (I like to call myself an Indy-conservative), but tend not to make many overtly political posts.  I do squee about fandom things, but less frequently these days -- my heart belongs to Joss Whedon and Neil Gaiman, and my latest obsession is Dragon Age: Origins.

This LJ is like my living room -- if I invite you in, it's because I'm placing a certain amount of trust in you.  I don't mind if you add me as a friend (comment here if you have added me, and do me the favor of reminding me how we know each other), but be aware that I may not add you back right away.  Give me a chance to get to know you a bit first.  Like I said, my posts have gotten more personal lately, and I am a fairly private, introverted person by nature. 

I recently did some spring cleaning on my f-list.  If you were defriended in error, drop a line here. :)

Whedon, Gaiman AND Dragon Age? That's like... The Holy Three. And yay for writery angst!

(I really like what I've read of your AMWT universe, btw. And Maker's Breath, it is an entire universe by now lol. Need to sit down and catch up!)

ALSO a Marvel fangirl, but to a somewhat lesser extent than my Whedon/Gaiman fangirlesqueness. So, Whedon writing that Astonishing X-Men arc? Kinda made part of my brain explode in a giant geekgasm. ;)

Yay! (I keep meaning to sit down and read TLW, by the way. Speaking of whole universes...)

YES. Ye gads, YES. Best comic arc in the history of comic arcs (imho). Kitty and Colossus and just... gah! Everything! I cried. And then read it again and again and again.

Hi from Australia,
I've just found your "A Midwinter's Thaw" work and I'm in love with your words. Truly. I wish your creation was an approved DA publication so I could buy it and have the whole story to glomph in one go. (and hug it and squeeze it and call it George in a terribly fan-girlish way.)
I lost an entire night's sleep trying to catch up with your story and am delighted to have done so.
I'm an aspiring writer of dark fantasy when not playing DA (or coping with the mundanities of life) and loving how you and pagerunner_j are developing the characters. I'll stop nattering now before I bore you silly but I did want to say hi and thanks for the wonderful reading experience.
